As "time-wave zero" has nothing to do with reality, it cannot affect it either.
Really?? Says who? You? Shame on you for using pretentious condescension to try and discredit the OP, accusing him (?) of posting false information
and clogging the thread with your pomposity and pettiness. He stated that he is not an expert on earthquakes, not any form of a medium, not able to
predict the future. He stated his opinion
, and asked for feedback. Not for a self-appointed "editor" taking his post apart sentence by
sentence. Then someone else
decided it would be appropriate to give you
a writing lesson...in the same thread ffs
Your assertion that Timewave Zero has nothing to do with reality...do you have any facts to back that
up? I'm curious because the last time I
checked, "reality" is subject to revisement at any time. Who are we to say that a temporal version of the gravitational pull does not exist in
reality? "Time" only exists in our reality at all because we measure it. In fact, until we embrace (prove) a new idea or theory or belief as a
known factor (a fact), we can say that it is not "real". Sorry, but that would discredit a whole lot of people out there wouldn't it? Open your
mind a little. This is supposed to be a discussion about the topic...not a tool with which to attack another person for having an opinion, no matter
how much you may not agree with said opinion.
OP, you have to know phrasing the title as a predictive statement would get all sorts of attention right? There are many, many discussions out there
right now about this very same topic and it is getting heated because people are becoming genuinely frightened. I doubt you meant any harm by being
somewhat misleading with your title...you just wanted people to respond right? So don't muck the waters further by responding to these "critics"
with more aggression. Keep it friendly and you'll come out on top.
Now, regarding the "sulfur, aka. rotten eggs" comment: the reason rotten eggs smell like sulfur because as the organic components break down, a
little gas called Hydrogen Sulfide (Sulphide in the UK) is produced, which actually can be broken down chemically into elemental sulfur. So yes, your
comment was actually scientifically accurate...thought you might want to know.
Hydrogen sulfide is slightly heavier than air; a mixture of H2S and air is explosive. Hydrogen sulfide and oxygen burn with a blue flame to form
sulfur dioxide (SO2) and water. In general, hydrogen sulfide acts as a reducing agent.
At high temperature or in the presence of catalysts, sulfur dioxide can be made to react with hydrogen sulfide to form elemental sulfur and water.
This is exploited in the Claus process, the main way to convert hydrogen sulfide into elemental sulfur.
I would say that your "prediction" could be quite accurate indeed. Never mind the obvious, which is basically: "Duh!! Of course
be hit by an earthquake!" Everyone who lives there knows that. It's the smell of sulfur that is troubling...and the reports of people smelling it
as far as 100 miles away. What better catalyst for that H2S than the heat and combustion of seismic activity? People are right to be frightened. I
sincerely hope that nothing happens because I have many, many friends and family still living in the LA area, and many of them are not in a position
to get out in a hurry. Sensationalism and so-called "doom porn" aside; no one really thought Mount St Helens would blow either...and looked how
that turned out. I hope nothing happens and we can all laugh at ourselves later but until then, diligence in keeping the flow of information going is
the most positive thing we can do. Rock on!!
